Note: The Brompton extra light hub is 85mm wide (compared to the standard 100m on road / mountain bikes)
Brompton Q part code: QHUBF-SL
Brompton old Q part code (pre 2015): QHUBF-XL
Brompton part number: 9010141
Note: The hub has distinct left and right hand sides. This is because the axle protrudes by a different amount on each side to accommodate the mudguard stay.
It is essential that the wheel is fitted the correct way round.
If not fitted the correct way round, the wheel may not be properly secured and may come loose.
To help you with installation the hub is colour coded with the left side of the hub having a red axle cap. In addition the axle stubs are marked "L" and "R".
To fit, use the same tab-washers as on the old wheel (note: on some P-type Bromptons, there is a special RH tab washer), but discard (maybe keep for the future?) any plain M8 washers.
Insert the allen bolt HDB through the front axle spacer bush ASB and tab washer, and into the axle from the right hand side. Make sure that the left hand tab washer and wire-form are in place, and screw in the left hand nut and tighten.
